Last week my daughter and I went to a Mother-Daughter Book Club at the library. The discussion was on The Cabinet of Wonders. Actually, saying discussion is a bit of a reach. The group was for 8-12 year-old girls and their moms, and there wasn't a lot of input from most of the girls. But, the librarian who hosted the evening had found some interesting information about the author and some people and items mentioned in the book. She also had a game, craft and treat.
The best part was having some one on one time with my daughter. She seemed really happy about the outing, and it's fun that we have a common reading interest. Definitely a good activity to do together!
